Watch: ‘Mulk’ teaser explores a different side of nationalism

New Delhi: The teaser, 50 second long teaser of Mulk features protagonists Rishi Kapoor and Taapsee Pannu vividly. It starts with Rishi Kapoor’s voice declaring that he is a “desh drohi” (traitor) even as he defends himself by stating he is not.

Following this is a quick series of shots which show us his arrest, public commotion, a court room, his family’s ordeal and a tense Rajat Kapoor.

In this Anubhav Sinha-directed film, Rishi plays the character of Murad Ali Mohammed, accused of treason, while Taapsee plays his defence lawyer, Aarti Mohammed.

Tapsee says a very powerfull dialogue towards the end of the teaser, “Ek mulk kagaz pe nakshon ke lakeeron se nahi batta, sir. Mulk batta hai rang se, bhasha se, dharam se, zaat se.”

Anubhav’s film is based on a series of true events, and is slated to hit the screens on August 3.
